Trump and the drone

I had to laugh when Trump told the Chinese Reds to keep the drone they stole. James Hays, a commenter at WSJ, has it just right:

“Knowing the underwater drone was of small value as a prize, Mr Trump’s response to the Chinese seemed just right. And unexpected. No groveling, no negotiating, no public saber-rattling.

“China seemed to want to appear magnanimous in its offer to return the drone. Rather than accept the Chinese offer, Mr Trump turned it down and told them to keep it. I would wager the Chinese didn’t see that one coming.

“Welcome to the Revolution, Mr Xi.”
